    Hello,

    http://uk.farnell.com/kingstate/kecg2742tbl-a/microphone-electret-condenser/dp/1502744

    These electret microphones with no pins- can they be soldered directly to a PCB? or are they intended to have wires added to them (not pcb mount).

    I am asking, to see whether these can be used on PCB, instead of mic with through hole pins- as I believe it is cheaper to use SMD instead of through hole in manufacturing process?

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    They are designed to be surface mounted but, if you're good with a soldering iron, you can attach wires.
